Interview with Ian Schrager on hotel design, boutique hotels and his current projects.

Hg2 Magazine

Ian Schrager is widely regarded as the founder of the boutique hotel, but his real roots were in the world of nightclubs where he was a co-founder of the legendary New York club, Studio 54. His first foray into hotels was the Morgans Hotel in New York. The Morgans Hotel Group spread its wings opening cult boutique hotels in all the cities it landed in: the Delano in Miami, the Sanderson in London and the cult Mondrian in LA, amongst others. After leaving the Morgans Group in 2005 Schrager collaborated with Julian Schnabel on the Gramercy Park Hotel and has now turned his hand to turning round the big hotel chains, the EDITION venture with Marriott has seen openings in Istanbul with London due to open this year. 2011 saw Schrager launch a new hotel, Public, under his own name in Chicago, which was received with critical acclaim.
